This guys. Yes. This right here. The little shit statements such as these still matter a whole damn lot.
Some people love to shut down people who talk about trans and intersex issues by saying that they’re “only 1% of the population” and thus can be ignored since they “aren’t statistically significant enough.”
By that logic, we can now systematically ignore:
- The entire state of Rhode Island
- Anyone who makes over $500,000 a year
- Pacific Islanders
That’s not a message which in any way supports women’s humanity and agency. It still treats us like a sex class. Like prizes. Like property.
People be calling cars and ships and America “she” but when a trans women asks for female pronouns people be like no
Doctor Who star Peter Capaldi has revealed that there will be no flirting between the Doctor and his assistant Clara Oswald in the forthcoming series.
New Time Lord Capaldi, 56, has said that he was “adamant” that there will be “no Papa-Nicole moments”.
When asked about the age gap between himself and his 28-year-old co-star Jenna Coleman, Capaldi said: “They’ll be no flirting, that’s for sure. It’s not what this Doctor’s concerned with. It’s quite a fun relationship, but no, I did call and say, ‘I want no Papa-Nicole moments.’ I think there was a bit of tension with that at first but I was absolutely adamant.”
